MUCH hyped nationwide agitation ‘Bharat Bandh’ evoked lukewarm response in Chhattisgarh state. In the state capital, all the establishments remained open including the educational institutions. The agitation was called to implement previous SC/ST Act and withdraw the said Act amended by Supreme Court. Meanwhile, many organisations including Chhattisgarh Sarv Brahman Samaj (CSBS) were against the agitation and submitted memorandum to local administration on the behalf of the president.

According to Lalit Mishra, State President of CSBS the amendment made by the Supreme Court in the SC/ST Act is correct and following any complaint FIR should be registered against theconcerned person after through investigation. The members appealed to the President of India to support the amended SC/ST Act to avoid injustice against innocent persons. Meanwhile, local administration made elaborate security arrangements to over come any untoward incidents in the state capital.
